This programme is taught in the classroom and in five practical Business Departments on campus: Reception, Kitchen, Garden, Cleaning and TSiBank. The academic year is divided into four ten week Business Cycles so that students spend one week in the classroom studying the fundamentals of Business Management and the theoretical principles underlying business, followed by one week in a Business Department over these ten weeks. During the year students have a chance of spending time in four different Business Departments where they learn time management, business ethics, how to work in a team, run meetings and apply the Business Administration theory learnt in the classroom.
